Document with “KANTONGERECHT GROENLO” and round seal stamped in blue in lower left corner, dated “16 April 1946” in upper right corner, line separating first and second section of letter, signed twice.
Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: This document reflects an effort to locate a child through guardianship registers, but the response to this inquiry reveals no record of Mozes Philip Noot in these registers. In all probability Mozes was hidden during the German occupation of the Netherlands. Approximately 25,000 Dutch Jews went into hiding during the war, and approximately two-thirds survived. The rest were deported to death camps. About 4,000 of those who survived were children. It is possible that Mozes Philip Noot, born in 1932, eight years of age at the beginning on the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands, survived the war and possibly retained his assumed name and relevant ID forms.
